Must. Update. Word count.

I've become so reliant on the instant gratification of seeing that graph go up that I just don't know what to do with myself. November's over, and I finished out NaNoWriMo 2008 with approximately 66K and about a third of my novel complete. I claim victory and have not completed the novel - I'm a rule breaker, wheeee.

So I finally got my characters talking to me again today - whine and ye shall receive - and now I'm done for the day, it's sleepy time, and all I want to do is update that damned word count.

So, fun new Nat featurette!

Novel: When Brilliant Shine the Stars: Stinking *$#&ing Ooze (A Hierarchy Story) [WBSS:S*O]
Daily Word Count: 1621
Total Word Count: 68712

Also, I can't stop playing Mana Khemia. I love Flay. And Pamela. (I just got Pamela.) Also, I want a Vasilissa's Doll for my very own. That name is stalking me, by the way. Vasilissa. It's also the name of a significant character in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series which (believe it or not) is delightful. And the latest novel is sitting on my couch taunting me with it's pretty words. But I know if I get into a good novel that I won't get back to writing for months. I want to finish this one. There are too many words in my head for me to get sidetracked now.

Which is a damned pity because the first few pages tell me that the tantalizing promise with which book 2 ended did not go the way I (and the main character) was hoping.

To recap: Won NaNo. Miss NaNo. Can't Stop Writing. Dhampir girls are hot. The Ooze wants to eat you.

Good day.
